Multinational patterns of seasonal asymmetry in human movement influence infectious disease dynamics.

Journal Title: 
Publication Date: 
Jan 01, 0000

Seasonal variation in human mobility is globally ubiquitous and affects the spatial spread of infectious diseases, but the ability to measure seasonality in human movement has been limited by data availability.

Mapping poverty using mobile phone and satellite data.

Publication Date: 
Feb 02, 2017

Poverty is one of the most important determinants of adverse health outcomes globally, a major cause of societal instability and one of the largest causes of lost human potential.

Dynamic denominators: the impact of seasonally varying population numbers on disease incidence estimates.

Journal Title: 
Publication Date: 
Oct 25, 2016

BACKGROUND: Reliable health metrics are crucial for accurately assessing disease burden and planning interventions. Many health indicators are measured through passive surveillance systems and are reliant on accurate estimates of denominators to transform case counts into incidence measures.

Quantifying seasonal population fluxes driving rubella transmission dynamics using mobile phone data.

Publication Date: 
Sep 02, 2015

Changing patterns of human aggregation are thought to drive annual and multiannual outbreaks of infectious diseases, but the paucity of data about travel behavior and population flux over time has made this idea difficult to test quantitatively.

Integrating rapid risk mapping and mobile phone call record data for strategic malaria elimination planning.

Journal Title: 
Publication Date: 
Feb 19, 2014

BACKGROUND: As successful malaria control programmes re-orientate towards elimination, the identification of transmission foci, targeting of attack measures to high-risk areas and management of importation risk become high priorities.

Travel risk, malaria importation and malaria transmission in Zanzibar.

Journal Title: 
Publication Date: 
Feb 22, 2012

The prevalence of Plasmodium falciparum malaria in Zanzibar has reached historic lows.

MeSH Terms: 

Human movement data for malaria control and elimination strategic planning.

Journal Title: 
Publication Date: 
Sep 12, 2012

Recent increases in funding for malaria control have led to the reduction in transmission in many malaria endemic countries, prompting the national control programmes of 36 malaria endemic countries to set elimination targets.

The use of census migration data to approximate human movement patterns across temporal scales.

Journal Title: 
Publication Date: 
Jan 17, 2013

Human movement plays a key role in economies and development, the delivery of services, and the spread of infectious diseases. However, it remains poorly quantified partly because reliable data are often lacking, particularly for low-income countries.
